3 ways to wear denim shorts

fourteenth October two thousand fifteen

All year round.


There are a few wardrobe items that just seems to make life easier. Like a structured black blazer (surprise!), a crisp white shirt, and last (but definitely not least) denim. 

And since we’re still technically in the in-between seasons, I thought it’s the perfect time to talk about one of my favourite things to wear (but also one of the hardest things to find) – i.e. denim shorts that fit exactly how they should. 

Finding the perfect pair isn’t easy; the length, the rise and the wash all play a part in determining how they look when they’re on. 

That’s why I decided to show you three styles I love and a few different ways to wear them, so you and your next pair of denim shorts can live happily ever after <3

Ready, set, go.

Wearing:
1. GO BASIC & ACCESSORISE

The most obvious way to wear them is with a plain tee, but that doesn’t mean your outfit has to look ZzzzZZzzzZzz. Try keeping it tonal (e.g. white on white, black on black or blue on blue), and add a belt or a necktie to break it up a bit.

2. BE A BOSS ABOUT IT

Here I’m going for the wardrobe staple trifecta. I love the combination of a crisp white shirt, black blazer and these denim shorts

A lighter wash tends to read casual, so try wearing it with a blazer and a boyfriend shirt to elevate your outfit. Necktie optional (but highly recommended).

3. DRESS THEM UP

Alexa Chung approves. Wear your denim shorts after dark with a high neckline and statement earrings. I find that pairing a high-waisted pair like these with a dressy top is an easy way to nail the whole ‘done, but undone’ thing. Easy!
